side cover pins

Anybody have any ideas on how to repair/ fix the pins on the side covers when they break off without replacing the complete cover, thanks

Welcome to the forum.

On my CB900C I used two part epoxy to re-attach one pin and rode it for another ten years.

Of course you mileage may vary.

Another method often suggested is ABS cement.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

stud balls

I use stud balls and JB weld for Plastics. The panels and the pins are ABS so they can be gluesd back on if you still have the pin. Has to be cleaned with sandpaper first. If pin is lost. I use stud balls.
